Tangy Garlic Chicken Wings with Lemon, Onion and Coriander Infusion

Seems like the New Year has just began, but in just a few more days we'll already be heading to the second month of this year.. I couldn't take any time, to do posting for the last two weeks. It is still a crazy schedule. How nice it would be to have one good "Robo" for each family to help us with our work & daily chores. LOL!!! Well definitely we are in the era of Robotics, Rocket Speed age. So this is not far.

There is small mis-happening in publishing this post. It happened one day that I typed the whole draft, intro & recipe and with a single click, everything vanished. Since that day I couldn't get this done and put it up on my space.

Well better late than never, here I'm now. I'm not much a fan of Chicken wings, in spite of all the hype about it...I had never included it in my menu..Much more when my "SBD", is strictly wing-free. But this time I couldn't resist but to befriend them when I found these on sale and made this unique wings casserole.

I envisaged the flavour of lemon garlicky wings, so put together the wings with pepper, garlic, infusing fresh lemon, coriander leaves, onion into it and it turned out delicious. The juices from the chicken, lemon and onion, keep the wings moist.The best way to relish this is directly from the casserole, dipping the wings with the tangy juicy gravy!!! yummy!!!!

Ingredients :
10 Whole Chicken wings
1 tsp Olive oil

To Marinate:
1 small Garlic pod crushed fine
2 Tsp Lemon Pepper powder(use the regular black pepper alternatively)
1 tsp fennel seed powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp Cardamom powder (Optional)
(1 tsp Garam masala powder can be used instead of the above three powders too).
A pinch of Tumeric powder
1/2 cup Yogurt
1 Tsp olive oil
Chopped coriander
Salt to taste fresh

To Infuse :
1 Big Lemon, cut into circles
1 Big Yellow Onion sliced
1 Small bunch of Coriander leaves

In a large bowl combine chicken wings with all the ingredients mentioned in the "To Marinate"
Marinate for 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven for 350F.

Moisten a large glass casserole with 1 tsp olive oil.

Place the marinated chicken wings in the casserole.

Now arrange the lemon circles and sliced onions in the gap between the wings.

Top with a layer the coriander leaves.

Broil the wings for 40 mins at 350F.

Roast for 10 mins at 400F chicken till reddish golden brown.
Insert a knife into one of wings to check whether done.

Remove from oven and serve warm along with the juices from the lemon and onion in the casserole.
